Two-time Miami Beach mayoral candidate Steve Berke had himself a pro-medical marijuana parody hit on YouTube with “You’re the Law that I Want (Yes on 2).” Set to the song “You’re the One That I Want” from the musical Grease, Berke and his crew dance and sing while urging Florida voters to yes on Amendment 2, which would legalize medical marijuana.
The four-minute parody racked up 300,000 views and was featured on Comedy Central, Buzzfeed, and the Huffington Post, according to its producers. But it’s been pulled by the site, after the Warner/Chappell music company claimed it violated its copyright. Apparently nobody told Warner/Chappell that satire and parody are fair use in the United States.

YouTube has become a great resource for cannabis growers. Want to learn how to get better yields from your plants? Go to YouTube. Want to learn how to make ice wax? YouTube. There’s plenty of instructional videos on all sorts of topics posted either by legal cultivators in states where cannabis is legal or clandestine, secretive growers who don’t divulge their identities or locations.
Jason Pelletier is neither of those, according to Las Vegas police.

It is a sad fact of cannabis life: glass bongs break despite the amount of care put into keeping them safe and operational. Sometimes it is an accident, other times it is on purpose but if you’ve got a bong there’s a good chance it is going to be reduced to rubble at some point in your lifetime.
Just hope you don’t have a friend their to capture it like the ten people below in our favorite bong breakage videos from YouTube.

Kyle Berry’s mugshot.

Kyle Berry loved growing cannabis and felt that sharing his knowledge of cultivation with the world was his way of giving back to the cannabis community.
Sadly, the New Hampshire man’s generosity bit him in the ass after police detectives say they watched the videos and recognized his reflected face in a shiny surface and were able to spot his name address on a package – all of which led to his arrest and pleading guilty to manufacturing a controlled drug yesterday. Instead of making videos for the next year, he’ll unfortunately be spending his time behind jail walls.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay In Your System?

​The YouTube/White House “Your Interview with the President” just wrapped up, and unfortunately the web video giant didn’t find time to present President Obama with the marijuana legalization question from a retired police officer that received — by far — more votes than any other video in the contest.

“They did find time, however, to pick the President’s brain on pressing national issues like late night snacks, singing and dancing, celebrating wedding anniversaries and playing tennis,” said Tom Angell of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP).
“It’s worse than silly that YouTube and Google would waste the time of the president and the American people discussing things like midnight snacks and playing tennis when there is a much more pressing question on the minds of the people who took the time to participate in voting on submissions,” said Stephen Downing, the retired Los Angeles police officer and a board member of LEAP.
“A majority of Americans now support legalizing marijuana to defund cartels and gangs, lower incarceration and arrest rates and save scarce public resources, all while generating much-needed new tax revenue,” Downing said. “The time to discuss this issue is now. We’re tired of this serious public policy crisis being pushed aside or laughed off.”

High: The True Tale of American Marijuana

​High: The True Tale of American Marijuana, featured on Toke of the Town last year, has received lots of support and kudos from film-watchers, documentary lovers, and the drug policy reform community. So the film’s director, John Holowach, was understandably surprised on Tuesday when he logged into his YouTube account and discovered a notice from YouTube that one of his videos — a clip of one of the most powerful scenes in the documentary — had been censored.

“Yes, YouTube informed me that they have censored what is perhaps the most important and powerful scene in the documentary,” Holowach said. “Displaying a vicious abuse of power of prison guards, prisoners are made to crawl on the ground, strip naked, bend over, and all of this in front of other prisoners and caught on camera.”

Antoine Dodson in the “Bed Intruder Song” video from YouTube

​Antoine “Bed Intruder” Dodson, whose TV news rant against a would-be rapist became a viral music video and his expressway to stardom, appeared in an Alabama city court on Monday, facing marijuana possession charges along with four other misdemeanors.

Shortly after his court appearance, Dodson posted a series of defiant tweets poking fun at the proceedings, reports CNN.
“Court was bullshit,” said one tweet.
“Damn I didn’t kill anyone did I??? It’s Just weed!!! You know that stuff that grows like grass?? Yeah that! !!” said another tweet to his 37,000-plus followers.
“Damn!! I never been in jail except that time in grade school,” he tweeted. “You remember!!!”

​What’s hotter than a beautiful woman smoking weed? Not much, man. Maybe a beautiful woman smoking weed who then uploads footage to YouTube.

Something about feminine grace combined with cannabinoid-based consciousness alteration seems to hold us in thrall.
The act of smoking, already rife with sexy possibilities, becomes an even more potent statement of sensuality when manifesting itself through an attractive female.

For all you degenerate stoner poon hounds, male and female, I present for your delectation and enjoyment, after grueling research, Toke of the Town‘s Top 10 YouTube Chicks Smoking Weed.

If you voted for marijuana as a CitizenTube question, then your vote didn’t count.

Yes, questions about marijuana were the most popular in the CitizenTube voting Monday afternoon.
But YouTube, in a gutless move, decided at the last minute not to present the highest ranked questions to the President.
Initial reports that the President had ignored the marijuana questions were inaccurate; YouTube took pot, the top vote getter, out of the running.
President Obama never even got an opportunity to answer the most popular question of all.
Wait, what?

The recent arrests and legal actions against a former Marijuana Enforcement Division official and several marijuana industry license-holders here in Colorado has been touted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions as an example of why this industry is not working. In a letter to congressional leaders on May 1, he also suggested that in some way the regulated marijuana industry contributes to more illegal marijuana trafficking. In actuality, a regulated system like the one in Colorado has created a boom for us in the areas of job creation, revenue generation and increased law enforcement support, and the list goes on.
